Profile

Colin Munro is a hard-hitting batsman who made his first-class debut in 2006, but didn't really make a big impact in the longer form of the game till the 2011-12 season, when he scored a century and three fifties for Auckland. Next season he did even better, scoring three centuries in six innings, including a whirlwind unbeaten 269 off 252 balls against Wellington. He was rewarded with a call-up to the New Zealand squad for the tour to South Africa, and played in three Twenty20 internationals at the start of that tour. He made his Test debut soon after, in the second Test at Port Elizabeth.
